The PDT broadcast of the semifinals is over.  Three were to move on: the top three in the E/C/M vote plus one West Coast Save.  Thus there were two blue chairs plus the red hot seat.

Tonight, one hour at 9 EP/8 C/7 M; per the app, all eight remaining contestants perform, two are eliminated.  I'm guessing that means five top E/C/M scorers plus one PDT save are retained.  Last...
